The word Deuteronomy derived from Greek and Latin. It is "Devarim" in Hebrew and it means "words."
I see in this book that people's hearts are so stubborn. Mine is like that, too.
God "Go and conquer the land I am giving you."
People "Let us send spies and study the land first."
After the spies came back they didn't want to go.
God "Turn around and go back."
People "We repent. Let us go forward to the land."
People went any way.
They cried after they were defeated but it was too late, but God is still gracious and compassionate. He loves them anyway.
Many situations like this happen in our lives, I think. Then we cry and think to ourselves (or to the Christians) "where is God when we need him?"
Please forgive me for being selfish and self-centered...
